    Shop locally!!

    People shop where the things and brands they want are at a good price.If the items are not at any local shop they go elsewhere.

    Good for them in keeping it local,the only jacket and coat people tend to buy is the north face ..not because they are good but because people want to fit in with everyone else.

    The best places to work are the mom and pop small companies where everyone knows everyone and you are not just a number.
    Good luck and keep going.

    The Valones are good and generous people; they allowed my family to stay at their mountain home (they're neighbors of my in-laws)during the Christmas holidays a few years back. Best of luck to them!
